Also if you’re on the fence about trying a beta application note the following from the Adobe Labs Lightroom page:
This download will install the Lightroom 2.0 beta and will work independently alongside your installation of Lightroom 1.3.1.Â The beta version is intended to provide an opportunity to give feedback and as such, does not read, upgrade or import catalogs from previous versions of Lightroom.Â Please continue to use Lightroom 1.3.1 for your primary workflow needs.
